Major applications of the DOI system currently include:

    * persistent citations in scholarly materials (journal articles, books, etc.) through CrossRef, a consortium of around 3,000 publishers;
    * scientific data sets through DataCite, a consortium of leading research libraries, technical information providers, and scientific data centers;
    * European Union official publications through the EU publications office.

In the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's publication service SourceOECD, each table or graph in an OECD publication is shown with a DOI name that leads to an Excel file of data underlying the tables and graphs. Further development of such services is planned.[10]

A multilingual European DOI registration agency activity, mEDRA, and a Chinese registration agency, Wanfang Data, are active in non-English language markets. Expansion to other sectors is planned by the International DOI Foundation
